Jeffrey Cufaude beat me to it--a new manifesto proposal on changethis.com.

On his blog, Jeff says, after excoriating the pitfalls of your usual talking-head meeting, "What I find most appalling is that the masses don't demand better and vote with their feet and pocketbooks. It's almost as if people have been lulled into believing this is what they should expect from a learning experience. It's not, and they shouldn't." I've read some of his stuff in industry magazines, and Jeff is so on my wavelength when it comes to adult education and meetings design. If he's on yours as well, go to changethis.com and give his proposal a vote.

My only disagreement with him is that some of us do vote with our feet--here are my top 10 reasons to bolt from a bad meeting. What are yours?
